If you are struggling with overwhelming feelings of sadness that impact day to day functioning, you may be suffering from depression. Beyond feelings of sadness, other symptoms might include being in an irritable mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt, low self-esteem, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, loss of energy, and/or difficulties concentrating.
These symptoms impair a person, preventing them from living their lives at school, work, or at home.
At its worst, depression leads to thoughts about ending one’s life. Depression is a highly common, serious condition that affects hundreds of thousands of Canadians every year. The first step towards getting your life back and regaining control is seeking help. Therapy for
depression provides help in managing the condition, using advanced techniques and methods to improve quality of life.
The last thing you want to do is go through something like this alone. When a sufferer of depression has the support they need to start feeling like themselves again, it is possible to overcome those feelings of sadness.
